• Home Studio

    Butler Gallery is closed while we relocate to Evans’ Home, where, pending current health restrictions, we’ll be open this summer!

    While we’re waiting to reopen, and many of us are at home looking for creative projects to keep the kids occupied, we’re going to release some creative activity inspiration every week! The activities in our Home Studio series can be done by children of all ages, 5 to 105! Tag us on Social Media #HomeStudioBG

    Colouring Pages, based on works from our Collection, are also available here.
